Representing Injured Construction Workers In New Jersey

By law, New Jersey employers must provide wage benefits and free medical coverage for a work-related injury, without regard to fault. Yet construction workers often face obstacles when seeking medical treatment or claiming a long-term disability.

We understand the construction industry and the range of injuries common on construction sites. Our legal team has handled all types of construction accident claims:

  • Falls from roofs or heights
  • Ladder or scaffolding fall
  • Power tool injuries
  • Heavy equipment accidents (cranes, forklifts, skid loaders, excavators)
  • Traffic accidents on duty
  • Falling objects or flying debris
  • Structural collapse
  • Electrical shock (exposed wiring, power lines)

Pursuing All Sources Of Compensation

In addition to your workers' compensation claim, you may have grounds to sue third parties who contributed to an accident. While you can't sue your employer or co-workers, you could have a product liability claim or a negligence claim against a subcontractor, property owner or a motorist or bystander who is not in your chain of employment.

Trial lawyer Edward Magram is certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a workers' compensation specialist, reflecting his legal knowledge, courtroom abilities and 30 years of focused experience. You are in good hands with our legal team, as we are committed and capable in maximizing your benefits and safeguarding your rights.
